Sick of manipulative people.

I've had enough of people who try to trick, cajole or guilt me into doing what they want. They clearly think I'm some kind of naive idiot, but I'm way ahead of them. If they would just ask me straight, I might say yes - or I might say no, if I don't want to do it. Either way, I'd have a lot more respect for them, and be far more likely to keep them in my life.

And thank you for saying "people".
The traditional thinking is that it's just something women do, but I have had way more guys try to manipulate me than females.

This post seems to be a form of passive manipulation in itself designed to provoke an inquiry from another. Why don't YOU just confront THEM directly instead of posting on here, especially as the consequence is so extreme as keeping someone in your life? What's the fear here?

@this is interesting. Nope, just venting. I did confront them. No fear involved. Just pi$$ed off that people keep doing this.

Them! All of them is it or just a them. This is because your post says people manipulative people plural of the one single person. So a singularity here means anger in my opinion which means very little to most so do not fret any, I am likely wrong anyways.

You know you're both a couple of manipulators fishing for information from OP in hopes you can re-aquire your previous targets that escaped from you. It's not the OP. Go get counseling.
